The name of the first MXGP Motocross World Championship winner is Antonio Cairoli. This is the sixth time in succession that the 29-year-old Italian has won the World Championship in motocross. After the renaming of the MX1 category MXGP, the factory rider of the Red Bull KTM Racing Team continues to dominate proceedings with a more than impressive showing. At every Grand Prix weekend at virtually every race track he remains the top favourite for Grand Prix victory with amazing consistency, laying the foundations for winning the world championship title year by year. The Red Bull KTM rider achieved supreme day victories at nine out of the seventeen Grand Prix in the 2014 season, as well as putting in a brilliant performance on six of these occasions with a superb win in both races. All in all the likeable Italian took a total of fifteen race victories as well as finishing in the top three another thirteen times. This incredible track record enabled him to clinch his eighth World Championship title early on at the Goias Grand Prix in Brazil. The exceptionally talented rider has now chalked up seventy-two Grand Prix victories on the eternal winners‘ list – and there is no end in sight. Off the race track, Antonio Cairoli is an outstanding ambassador for motocross racing. In his home country of Italy, the Sicilian was even voted athlete of the year by Sky channel viewers . Here he came out top despite being up against such leading figures as Valentino Rossi, footballers Andrea Pirlo, Mario Balotelli and Francesco Totti, NBA basketball player Luigi Datome, swimmer Federica Pellegrini and Giro d‘Italia winner Vincenzo Nibali. A special highlight is the exclusive cinema feature about the career of the eight-times world champion entitled “Tony Cairoli – the Movie“. The film lasts 70 minutes and has been released in nine European countries. 5
